what is it?

A favorite garnish of some chefs, flowers add more than just color. They are can be spicy or zesty (think nasturtiums and phlox), bitter (snapdragons), and sweet and floral (pansies, dianthus, and roses). Select the variety you want to use with both flavor and color in mind.

how to choose

Because not all flowers are edible and sometimes even “edible” flowers are not grown in suitable conditions for consumption, be sure to buy them from a trusted purveyor (we like Melissas). You can find them at a well-stocked specialty market, or order online.
